Powering change at Brigidine

Story by Solar my School project team, March 2018

With the help of the Solar my School program, Brigidine College in Randwick has gone solar! The school has installed 208 solar panels to provide locally generated, green energy to power the school’s learning facilities.

Every year the system will help:

  • Reduce their electricity bill by 30%
  • Save the school over $14,000 they can invest in learning resources and equipment
  • Produce clean energy equal to running 217 computers
  • Avoid 72 tonnes carbon emissions, equivalent to taking 25 cars off the road

Solar my School is a free Council-run program making it easy for schools in the Eastern Suburbs to go solar, by providing support from start to finish.

Over 30 schools are already participating, from Vaucluse to Bondi to Maroubra.

Solar my Schools website is live!
